    I spent a humongous chunk of the day piecing 2 more of my table runners. I need to have 7 of them done by Christmas; 8 if I make one for my club Christmas exchange. I'll finish those this week, hopefully by Wednesday so I can cut out the pieces for the last one. I want them all done by the 1st so I can spend November quilting them.

    I don't have a lot of "spare" fabric to make a sandwich to practice straight stitch quilting on my "new" machine, a '54 Singer 66. I want to learn all about quilting on her, so what better way than a bunch of small projects. I hope to post some WIP projects soon.

    What about you guys?

    I went garage saling. I found some really nice fabric for a reasonable price, but I don't need anymore fabric. I can't seem to say no to a good deal on fabric.

    A friend of mine is working on a cathedral window by hand. Thought I'd give it a try, got on the tutorials and found Eddie's machine pieced tutorial. Yessss! That's more my speed Bought my muslin and have some feedsack pieces. Will probably sew the turned back curved pieces by hand to give it authenticity since I'm using muslin and feedsacks.

    No sewing for me, only work. I work for a 25 bed hospital and we are moving this weekend to a brand new building. Will sew again after the stress level goes down.

    I have two tree skirts ready to layer and quilt. I'm using poly fleece so they shouldn't need a lot of quilting so they'll go fast.

    I'm working on this small(er) quilt. It'll be about 45x45 when it's done, and it'll be a surprise for my co-worker who's having a baby.

    I'm calling it Sherbet.

    Sandwiched a lonestar quilt, tried to sandwich MIL quilt(too wonky). Worked on some hand quilting practicing. Hand pieced GMF for a little while, then I worked out some bugs on a quilt pattern I've been working on.

    I am putting together a mystery quilt called "Garden Delight" that was in the Quilters Newsletter Magazine. The final part that solves the mystery is in the Oct/Nov issue. I did mine in 30's repro prints and I really like how it's turning out.

    After my regular trip to Joann's this morning, I started 3 casserole totes and a table runner to go to a holiday craft fair in December.

    I'm going to make a gostly cover for my chair at work. Like a white pillow case with eyes and mouth to slip over the back of the chair. Hope it will make a few people crack a smile.

    Also making bat and pumpkin pins or magnets for work as favors for our Taste of Fall event and the halloween hat contest!
    busy busy busy!
